The Pageturner

New Perspective on Teen Fathers

by The Pageturner on Oct 10, 2008

I got this book at my school's annual book fair and assumed that it was not worth reading (they only have about five books that deal with Black culture). But I was surprised to find that I enjoyed it very much. It kept my interest and I connected to the main character. It opened my eyes and made me think that perhaps there were good fathers out there who happened to be teenagers. Overall, this is a good story for a beginning reader who is about 14 years old, maybe 15. I am making the assumption that the author is a beginning writer so this book would be an appropriate pair for the reader. There are some parts of the book that seem unnecessary, but other than that, it is enjoyable.
